2011-2012 World Dystopia Tour, South America

What do you get when you mix equal parts Dystopia and Iconoclast?
One of the most eagerly anticipated metal tours of 2012.
"I'm excited to tour with SYMPHONY X," ICED EARTH founder Jon Schaffer said. "They're phenomenal musicians and very cool guys. This co-headliner tour will be a great experience for the fans. It is also way overdue for us to play a proper tour of North America. Get ready!"
SYMPHONY X guitarist Michael Romeo echoes Schaffer’s enthusiasm.
We are proud to announce the first-week chart positions for Dystopia – our highly acclaimed new album – which includes our highest-ever debut on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 chart:
With the release of Dystopia, the world will experience a new Iced Earth -- a lean, mean kick-ass-and-take-names Iced Earth. So we felt it was time for a new Iced Earth web site.
We've wanted to make it more user-friendly, anyway. But -- most importantly -- we've wanted to add new features (such as a music player and band member bios). So we did.
Dystopia – Iced Earth’s 10th studio album – won’t be released until October 18th, but Revolver readers will get a taste of the sonic onslaught to come with an exclusive airing of "Dystopia", the album’s title track, on Thursday, October 6th.
